VIDAL, F.
Paris, Capelle, 1846. (4), 500 pp. 8vo. Modern half morocco, marbled boards, raised bands with gilt lettering. Bel Bo, Fourier, p. 69; DBMOF, iii, p. 502; Goldsmiths 34912; not in Kress; not in Einaudi. First edition. Vidal marks the transition from utopian socialism of Saint Simon and Fourier to collectivist socialism. 'In his works, as in those of his contemporary Pecqueur (.....) the principal doctrines of collectivism are clearly expressed and reduced to formulas; among these are the so-called 'iron-law' of wages, the theory that wealth is the produce of work 'of others', and that economic evolution leads infallibly to the socialisation of land and of capital. Vidal, however, does not go so far as this in his conclusions. He contents himself with cooperation for producers, profit-sharing for labourers, and a minimum wage fixed by law. His principal works are De la répartition des richesses .... , a critical explanation of the doctrines of the liberal school and those of the principal French socialists, interesting even at the present day ....' (Palgrave, iii, p. 621). - With stamp on title and page 1, some underlining, a faint and small stain in lower blank margin, occasional spotting.

[Fabrics]
Lyon or environment, not published, 1846. In two volumes. Folio (45.5 x 29.9 cm). 314 [148; 134, 16, 16] pp. (excluding several deliberately left blank), numerous illustrations. Original quarter vellum over marbled boards. Entirely handwritten text and illustrations, mounted original fabrics and hand-coloured designs. The second volume with a loosely inserted 16 pp. addition, dated 1846, and another 16 pp. addition with 169 often very complex and colourful fabric samples, mostly mounted on rectos). Printed labels (one with additional text) mounted on the front boards.l A large and neatly made manuscript on the "theory" and practice of weaving. It is richly illustrated and has many original samples (often of silk) and design examples (usually neatly hand-coloured) either mounted or - if very large - tipped in. Two different bookseller's labels (both of Bardoz, rue de la palme - place St. Pierre. Papeterie & lithographie en tous genres à Lyon) in each volume strongly suggest that this work was made in the French town of Lyon. Lyon has always been a center of fabric manufacturing. It even hosts a Musée des Tissus. P. Falcot's Traité encyclopèdique & Théorique Fabrication Tissus (2nd edition 1852) is entirely different in scope and content. One (loosely inserted) section of this manuscript is dated 1846 and, as the whole work is basically written in a single, very neat old hand, this date is probably correct for both whole albums, although they may in fact be slightly older. The aforementioned labels belong to the French paper seller Claude Aimé Bardoz, who was active between 1 … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

Jordan, [C. T.] A.
Paris, Maison; Leipzig, T. O. Weigel, 1846. Four parts in one. Tall 8vo (25.7 x 16.0 cm). 375 pp., 22 engraved plates of which several partly hand-coloured [1: 47 pp., 5 plates (4 larger, folded; one partly hand-coloured); 2: 39 pp, 2 large, folding, partly hand-coloured plates); 3: half-title, title page, 254 pp., 13 large, folded plates (numbered 1-12, 1bis) of which one partly coloured; 4: 37 pp., 2 large, folded plates]. Contemporary dark green half cloth over marbled boards. Spine with gilt floral ornaments and title. Marbled endpapers. A very rare publication by the French botanist Claude Thomas Alexis Jordan (1814-1897). "Born into a wealthy family, he chose a career path in natural history rather than becoming a businessman like his father. From 1836 to 1877 he traveled widely throughout France, collecting many botanical specimens on trips to the Massif Central, the Alps, the Pyrenees as well as on excursions to locations near Lyon. As a member of the Linnaean Society of Lyon, he came under the influence of several local naturalists, including Marc Antoine Timeroy, an amateur botanist who would have a profound impact upon his career. At Jordan's extensive botanical garden in Lyon, with his assistant Joseph Victor Viviand-Morel, he cultivated many thousands of different varieties of plants. Known for his micro-morphological analysis of plants - as a taxonomist he proposed a narrow conceptualization for the determination of species. Because of this, he was widely criticized for his tendency to differentiate species too finely" (Wikipedia). He described nearly 1700 new … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

Hawthorne, Nathaniel
Wiley and Putnam, New York, 1846. 12mo, two volumes: pp. [1-6] [1] 2-207 [208: blank]; [1-6] [1] 2-211 [212: blank], half title leaves present, contemporary mid-nineteenth century three-quarter black calf and green and black marbled boards, spine panel lettered and ruled in gold. First edition, first printings of both volumes. An early rebind (without the original wrappers) of first printing sheets with Smith and Craighead imprints present on both copyright pages and page [212] of volume two blank (in later printings page [212] is used as the title page for a publisher's catalogue). The second of Hawthorne's three major collections of short fiction published in his lifetime, and the best and most important of the three. Includes a number of classics, "The Birth-Mark," "Young Goodman Brown," "Rappaccini's Daughter" and "The Artist of the Beautiful." The other fantasy stories are "A Select Party," "Mrs. Bullfrog," "The Hall of Fantasy," "The Celestial Railroad," "The New Adam and Eve," "Egotism; or the Bosom Friend," "The Christmas Banquet," "Roger Malvin's Burial," "P.'s Correspondence," "Earth's Holocaust," and "A Virtuoso's Collection." "P.'s Correspondence," appears to be the first American alternate history story. "The darkness of his vision of the human psyche gives to almost everything he wrote, even works which were not supernatural fiction or fantasy, a sense that its protagonists are acting in obedience to the Gothic manipulations of the dead but shaping past, that they can never simply flourish in the here and now. It is in something like this sense that so much of … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

Twiss, Travers
London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1846. ix,[4],391pp. plus two folding maps (one with a few handcolored lines) and 32pp. of publisher's advertisements (dated October 1845). Original publisher's cloth, covers stamped in blind, spine gilt. 19th-century bookseller's label on front pastedown. Corners and spine ends bumped, inner hinges beginning to separate but still solid. Occasional light foxing. A very good copy. One of the most important works on the subject, arguing in favor of the British claims, in an attempt to refute Greenhow's argument as stated in his 1840 MEMOIR...ON THE NORTHWEST COAST OF AMERICA. In regard to lucidity and competent referral to authorities, Twiss is cited by some as the more adequate of the two works, though not necessarily the best historical account. Twiss includes some account of the voyages of Drake, Vancouver, Gray, Broughton, et al. The two maps support the British view of the Oregon question. The large one of North America shows a boundary including all of Oregon, although the more detailed map rather belies the argument by being based on a U.S. survey, evidently by Hood.

Lear, Edward (1812 Holloway – San Remo 1888 ) - zugeschrieben
Aquarell, mit schwarzer Tuschlinie umrandet, auf Velin.10,7:17,4 cm. Bekannt war Lear als Schriftsteller, insbesondere von Limericks, eine literarische Form, die durch ihn Verbreitung fand. Zunächst arbeitete er als Illustrator, 1846 veröffentlichte er ?Book of Nonsense?, eine Sammlung von Limericks, was ihm großen Erfolg einbrachte. Weitere Veröffentlichungen folgten, die bekannteste war das Kinderbuch ?The Owl an the Pussycat?. Trotz einer schon seit Kindheit an bestehenden Krankheit ? Epilepsie ? und schlechten Gesundheit ging er 1838 nach Rom, wo er mit Unterbrechungen 8 Jahre leben sollte. Weitere Reisen folgten auf den Balkan, in die Schweiz, mehrere Reisen nach Griechenland und 1872/1874 nach Indien. Darüber hinaus gab er Zeichenunterricht, seine wohl prominenteste Schülerin war Königin Victoria. Lear reiste wiederholt nach Griechenland. 1847 ist der erste Aufenthalt auf Korfu zu belegen, weitere Reisen nach Griechenland erfolgten 1855-1857, 1863 und 1864.

In between he wrote the present work on fossil remains of extinct British zoology as part of a complete British zoology published by Van Voorst.8vo, pp. xlvi, 1 leaf (errata), pp. 560, 1 folding table.

K., 1846. 8vo. Bound copletely uncut in a very nice newer half calf with gilt lettering and gilt lines to spine. An excellent, very nice, clean and fresh copy. Unusual un this condition (i.e. uncut and as clean and bright). X+480+(4)pp. First edition in the rare original binding, of this very important major book, the "Postscript", by the most famous Danish philosopher of all times, the father of existentialism.Besides being one of the most philosophically important of Kierkegaard's publications, this work reveals one of the most important "secrets" of this philosophical giant: The authorship of not only his main work and the main work of existentialism, "Either-Or", but also of all of his pseudonymous works. Nothing that Kierkegaard did was left to chance, which is also reflected in his carefully chosen pseudonyms and everything that came with them, e.g. his presentations , which carefully followed the pseudonym of the book, so that he never signed himself the author, if his Christian name was not listed as the author on the title-page. This carefulness also applied to the publication of his works, and his "Postscript" is one of the most carefully planned ones. The format of the book is large, 145 x 230 mm, and it is of large extent, -480 pages, and then 6 unpaginated ones, the last four of which contain his greatly important and carefully chosen revelation of the true authorship of all the pseudonymous writings, under the headline "A First and Last Explanation".

[Venezuela] [Treaty between Spain and Venezuela].
[1846]. N.p. [Caracas or Spain]. Folio, (255 x 197 mm). 4 pp. Unbound. Perfect condition.- This is the official treaty in which Spain recognises the creation and Independence of the newly formed Republic of Venezuela, following the revolutionary war. Its articles include the Queen’s renunciation of any rights over the American country, and recognises it as a free and independent nation. On its part, Venezuela assumes all the contracted debt by the Capitania de Venezuela during the colony. Exceptionally rare, we can only find one other copy of this significant treaty in a public institution (Yale). According the bibliographical note on Yale’s copy, the document was printed in Caracas, although could have been printed in Spain as well, in small numbers. The treaty was signed by Fermin Toro (Minister Plenipotentiary for Venezuela to Spain) who signes in name of Carlos Soublette, President of Venezuela, and Francisco Martinez de la Rosa, (member of the Consejo de Estado of Spain, representing Elizabeth II, Queen of Spain); it was ratified in all its parts by the Congress of Venezuela in 27 May 1845, and by the Queen of Spain on 19 June 1845.

Viticulture - American]: Spooner, Alden
A. Spooner & Co., Brooklyn, 1846. vi,[7]-96pp. Small octavo. Publisher's gilt cloth. Illustrations. Shallow spot of gnawing from fore-edge of upper board, and small scrape to lower edge of same, light foxing, otherwise a very good copy. First edition of this important work in the relatively early literature of American viticulture. Spooner was largely associated with Brooklyn and New York newspapers and printing concerns, but accomplished much as a local historian, serving as founding member of the Long Island Historical Society, to whom his large library was given. This practical guide emphasizes that region, particularly the cultivation of the Isabella grape, and collects reports from the press of successes in other areas. A second edition appeared in 1858. Although fairly well represented in institutions (OCLC locates 22 copies), this edition is uncommon in commerce. GABLER G40050. [Attributes: First Edition]

Kemble, W.
New York: Edward Walker, 114 Fulton Street, 1846. Very good condition. Rare color folding pocket map of New York City, drawn from an early map by David Burr. Shows Manhattan to 40th Street and much of Brooklyn and Williamsburg (sic). Public buildings, churches, parks, street names, colleges, ferries, City Hall, Castle Clinton, the Battery, U.S. Navy Yard, and docks. Hand colored by numbered precincts in Manhattan, 1 through 18. The legend shows Masonic and Odd Fellows lodges marked. The map covers the notorious Five Points area, the original American melting pot which included newly emancipated blacks (the African Methodist church built 1801 is shown at the corner of Leonard and Church), and the Irish. This slum had the highest murder rate of any slum; only the east End of London had comparably difficult living conditions. Folds into gilt stamped brown cloth covers. Slightly chipped top corners of covers, otherwise very good condition. With pencil presentation inscription at the front paste down, "Miss Matilda Bruyn, from a cousin, Poughcaughnaugsinque, Ulster Co, Jan. 1846". A few lines of verse below, also in pencil. The map in very good condition. With later lines ruled in red ink in "T" shape, across the bottom of City Hall's Record Office, to the west side along Murray Street, and to the east along Frankfort ending at South Street; stem of the "T" runs northeast roughly parallel to Broadway, all the way to the top of the map. 18 x 23 1/2"

GILES, Alfred
Quarto, [i] (title), 131 numbered leaves (including 79 and 79a; all typed rectos only). Unbound loose leaves (as originally produced), folded as one across the middle, with minor chips and creases to the edges (not well-aligned); in very good condition. The catalogue of the State Library of South Australia indicates that the original manuscript is in its collection ('202, 5 leaves; 30 cm . . . Compiled principally from his own experiences as an overlander and pioneer pastoralist, with special reference to the foundation of the Springvale, Delamere and Newcastle Waters runs'). The manuscript has not been published; there are a few other library holdings, and where information is available, they are either microform or CD versions. Alfred Giles (1846-1931), an explorer and pioneer of the Northern Territory, was engaged in 1870 'as second-in-command of John Ross's expedition to fix the course of the overland telegraph line' ('Northern Territory Dictionary of Biography'). In 1926, he published 'Exploring in the 'Seventies and the Construction of the Overland Telegraph Line', compiled from his contemporary notebooks. The present manuscript is the continuation of that volume, which concludes with the completion of the overland telegraph line. 'Although I had only been back in Adelaide two or three months I was quite ready to get back to the open spaces and the Northern Territory, consequently I was very pleased to know that my offer to overland 5000 sheep to the Northern Territory had been accepted by Mr. Todd'. This important autobiographical memoir concludes in early 1885. This … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

À Beckett, Gilbert Abbott; John Leech, illus.
London: Published at the Punch Office, 1846–48. 8vo (22 cm, 8.75"). 20 monthly parts in 19. Original parts issue of this playfully expounded yet actually generally accurate English history, written by one of the original staff members of Punch. John Leech's famous illustrations, including => 20 hand-colored plates as well as 120 in-text steel engravings and woodcuts, feature Abbott à Beckett's historic figures portrayed with amusing contemporary touches; e.g., William the Conqueror has a handlebar moustache, a portrait of a medieval king being medically treated features patent medicine placards in the background, and Henry VIII wears an opera hat a-Maying while his queen on the occasion carries a pink parasol. In all, of course, as was to be the case also with this duo's Comic History of Rome, the history/"history" comments on the readers' own time.    These parts (i.e., fascicles) were published between July 1846 and February 1848 and the expectation was that the purchasers of the parts would have them bound when the last part was received. Consequently half-titles (printed in red), title-pages (printed in red and black), and preliminaries were printed at the end of parts 11 and 19–20, and are present here.    Comparing this set of parts to Field's collation we find one ad slip lacking in No. 19/20, but an extra (uncalled-for) one in No. 4. Four of the wrappers (Nos. 1, 2, 18, 19/20) contain different ads than those specified by Field, but clearly these are original and authentic (possibly states of the wrappers?).         Tooley, Coloured Plates (1979 ed.), 295–96; Field, … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]

QUETELET, Lambert Adolphe Jacques (1796-1874).
Bruxelles: M. Hayez, 1846. Bruxelles:: M. Hayez, 1846., 1846. Large 8vo. [vi], iv, 450 pp. Half-title, numerous tables. Later full brown gilt-stamped cloth; endleaves with offsetting. With ownership signatures of A.L. Bowley, 1896, and F.N. David, 1957. Very good copy. FIRST EDITION of a landmark in social statistics. "This book is really an original, if elementary, treatise on probability and social statistics, written in the form of a series of letters to the Belgian king's two nephews, Ernest (the duke to whom the book was dedicated) and Albert (who by 1846 was husband to Queen Victoria of Great Britain). Quetelet had tutored the two in the 1830's, and in writing his book as a series of letters he was adopting a form that had been used with great success by Euler in 1768, with Letters to a German Princess, a popular exposition of physical science." - Stigler, History of Statistics, p. 206. / In his 1846 Lettres, Quetelet used [Laplace's curve of 'possible error'] to interpret anthropomorphic data, thus giving it a new methodological significance, as has been pointed out by Stigler. Quetelet used Laplace's theorem to determine whether a series of real objects (and not mere measures) could be considered homogeneous. Laplace's theorem implied that a group of measures affected by the same major causes, and varying only in terms of many minor, accidental causes, should be distributed according to Gauss' law. Quetelet's innovation was to use the Gaussian distribution as a way of detecting groups of homogeneous objects. He thus made explicit what had previously been merely i … [Cliquez ci-dessous pour une description complète]
